Obtaining a Host Message Number (OMGETHMN)

Required Parameter Group:


Host Message Number



API Overview:
The Obtaining a Host Message Number API (OMGETHMN) returns a unique message handle that QTRACS/400 uses to identify each transaction packet that it receives.

The primary use of this API is to enable the customer to uniquely tag a 'forward message submittal' transaction that originates from a 'legacy' custom external application and is sent via QTRACS/400. (All site-specific external applications must call OMCRTMSG instead of formatting and submitting a transaction.)
Required Parameter Group Details:
(1) Host Message Number

  • A unique nine-digit host message number.
